If you watched part 3 of LEGO Master on FOX, you know Canadian siblings and teammates Dave and Emily Guedes share a love of maple syrup, hockey (they always sport red and white hockey-themed shirts), and more clearly – build complex LEGO creations.
But in this week’s episode, which airs tomorrow, October 26, we learn about another shared passion – love for dogs – as teams are challenged with the first to build a canine. full life size from LEGOS and then led it down the runway on a chain in the first LEGO Masters Brickminster Dog Show.
“It was the best day of my life!” Emily, a self-proclaimed Chihuahua lover, dog mother, foster, and volunteer BC Chihuahua Rescue.
Emily burst into tears – and screamed with excitement – when she saw a pack of dogs, each of a different breed, running towards the contestants.
“My voice reaches a pitch that only dogs can hear,” she jokes.
Dave explains that when building, they tried to capture key traits of their particular breed such as the eyes, the texture of the coat, the cheerfulness of the ears, the shape of the paws, and the claw of the tail. – the categories that a panel of judges, including LEGO Masters host and executive producer, actor Will Arnett, considers when choosing which team has created the most exact replica of their breed .
“We had a challenge because our dog is quite small and we had to make it fluffy enough to be able to capture the dog’s coat and still keep it tiny,” says Dave. “It’s hard to build soft fur with LEGO bricks.”
To take their LEGO dog down the runway, Dave chose boat slides, which look like padded leather, to fit half-inch-wide feet. Other teams are recreating larger breeds that have used wheels or tires in between the paws.
Emily walked their real dog, who had been sitting on her lap for most of the hour-long construction, down the runway. She recalls Brickmaster Jamie’s joke, “’You need four hands to build LEGO; you can’t just sit there and pet the dog all the time. ‘”
But there are dogs on set that feel natural and comfortable for both Emily and Dave, who both have their own dogs at home – Emily a short-haired Chihuahua named Harlow and Dave a rescued Terrier – and who are usually by their side while they build.
Emily says: ‘Neither of us have ever built a life-sized dog before, but we always wanted to. “I love our work.”
